Incorporating repurposed old doors into your decor is an easy way to make a statement with a pretty decoration. I love old vintage/antique doors! It’s not too difficult to repurpose an old door into Christmas decor.
I had a Christmas photo shoot at my home a while back. I borrowed this old door from a friend. She had painted the antique door a creamy white. Black chalk paint was painted onto the wood surface inside the oval inset which was the perfect size to create a Christmas sign that reads: Meet Me Under the Mistletoe.
I added some mistletoe greenery and striped red and white ribbon to add a sweet touch to the sign.
I found vintage ice skates at a vintage shop, for about $25, and hung them on the door knob. Then I added the red and white ribbon as the “laces” and placed holiday greenery in the ice skates.
Additionally I added a red holiday wood box filled with logs and a wood/tin heart just added the right touch.
Wood details really make this door pop. I have found old doors on the online classifieds and through Facebook Marketplace.
Clean of grime/grease from the door before painting. Sand lightly and spray or brush with the appropriate paint. You can ask a paint store expert for painting guidance. It is really simple to paint a door that will be used as a decor prop.
I placed old red shutter next to the door to it to see if I liked it with or without. What is your opinion do you like with the shutter or without?
